Talia Santiago – Community Service
I was lucky enough to get to go home for fall break and so for my service adventure, I went out into a little town close to my house called Lansdale, PA where my aunt lives and collected trash with my cousin and my sister. These two just happened to be the best people to recruit for this job because I didn’t even have to stage funny pictures, they are both just naturally goofballs and all I had to do was catch them in action. It was a great way to help our community, to spend some time with my family, and have fun, all while getting an assignment done!
Here is a screenshot of what I posted to snapchat and the views it got as of tonight. I choose to post this picture on snapchat because it was the quickest way to show all my friends what I was up to and hopefully inspire them to do the same. I was also able to make it fun with the Lansdale filter and trash bitmoji. I chose to make a joke in the caption to show the fun you can have while picking up trash. In our research, we learned how millennials like things that are funny and relatable which is what I was getting at in my post. I even inspired my sister to post a couple snaps (pictured below) to her story, hopefully inspiring even more people that follow her.
